This week’s JA People of Action features Abby Phillips
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
This week’s JA People of Action features Abby Phillips, Director of Education at Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky. Abby’s favorite thing about Junior Achievement is, “I love what JA stands for and the concepts we teach about financial literacy, college/career readiness, and entrepreneurship. The real-life skills we focus on are so important for all students and will help them become successful adults.” She also said, “I love being a part of this organization and working with teachers and other community members to make an impact on the lives of young people. I think we all want the same thing for the students – to be successful in life – and JA provides an avenue to help make that happen. I would love to talk to you about volunteering!”
